Highly scalable: Supports scale-out architecture

What is our primary use case?

Based on my technical background on Oracle EBS, I can tell that the primary use case of this solution is having a sophisticated software, an ERP, in the environment. It is to have a software system that consists of global business applications with built-in integrity. Generally, my customers use it for their business applications: CRM, Financials, Human Capital Management, Procurement, Supply Chain and more. There are also some seperate applications outside these ERP systems, but mostly, they are also tightly integrated with EBS.

Pros and Cons

  • "EBS has lots of application families and lots of features. It is modular in deployment and flexible enough to let the customer increase the built-in capabilities and enable new applications when needed. These are very important things at hand in case there will be a need to expand the product capabilities and/or implement new projects."
  • "Administration takes some effort. Administrating the technology stack is not so complex but application aware database administration and following the new methodologies like online patching can be a little complex and time consuming. Oracle should ease the administrators jobs and do some innovation on this administration area as well. Oracle Autonomous Database is Oracle's leading technology these days. Using a similar approach, application stack may become a little more self-managing."

What other advice do I have?

Customers can run Oracle EBS on Oracle Cloud today.. If the client's needs and expectations are met and they are compatible with the regulations they are subject to, they can also think of running Oracle EBS on cloud.

Highly flexible but lacks some balance between the cloud and on-premise versions

Pros and Cons

  • "There is essentially one solution for every industry within Oracle — you won't require a third-party solution."
  • "Oracle E-Business Suite uses an old technology (Forms), which is Java-based."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven. Oracle E-Business Suite is not for small businesses as, over a period of time, you will incur a huge cost when it comes to hosting. It's not just about application licensing, there is also hosting infrastructure, etc. It's not the functionality that's the problem for small entities, it's the overall cost. Smaller companies should go for something like AppDynamics, SAP Business, or NetSuite. Oracle is best suited for large organizations — from medium to large. It's a great solution for companies who grow quickly…

An integrated set of business applications for automating countless processes

What is our primary use case?

Oracle E-Business Suite is a corporate business product. It has financial, logistics, HR modules, et cetera. It contains lots of modules. Thanks to this, our clients can track all of their business needs with one platform. They can also design their own business needs using this product. Within our organization, we also use Oracle E-Business Suite. However, we are only using a small part of it, mainly for financial purposes. We don't have any logistics issues. We are consultants: we don't buy and sell products, we don't have a warehouse, et cetera. Actually, all our call centers are onsite… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It's highly customizable."
  • "Some of my clients report that the overall ease of use could be simplified."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Oracle E-Business Suite to other potential users. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight. We expect some additional features, of course. We are located in Turkey and there are many tax legislation rules, et cetera. There are so many binding processes that make customizing this product for Turkish districts complicated. For instance, it's easy to customize products for Japan, Kuwait, and Germany because their tax rules are not very complex. But in Turkey, tax rules are really complex and change every month. The government changes…

Great finance modules and flexibility; not very user friendly

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for order management, bills of materials, work in progress, and finance. I take care of the infrastructure in the Oracle apps. We're a customer of Oracle and I'm a system analyst.

Pros and Cons

  • "Great finance modules and customization."
  • "Not user friendly."

What other advice do I have?

For someone who has never used Oracle, I would tell them that it's not a user-friendly application, so it takes time to get your head around it. On top of that, Oracle is mostly done in Linux and Unix which is completely command-based so from an administration perspective, it's helpful to have some experience and knowledge because it's not a walk in the park. Landscapes change and so do the products and services. With that perspective in mind, I would say that although Oracle is a very robust technology and a leader in certain areas, it takes time to adapt to it. Other technologies are far…

A powerful suite of business tools that help with many ongoing processes

What is our primary use case?

We have been using this as an enterprise solution for many things including for financials, for supply chain, for sales, for maintenance, for manufacturing, et cetera. You name it. It helps us with many business processes.

Pros and Cons

  • "As we have been using this for the past nine years we have had the opportunity to explore the product. Really everything has worked well and all the modules are very good."
  • "Oracle is not keeping up on development of the on-premises version of this product as they are concentrating on cloud solutions."

What other advice do I have?

The advice that I would give to others who want to start using this product is that, in this day and age, you need to first evaluate different products. At the very least you would want to compare the E-Business Suite with the other Oracle cloud products. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate the Oracle E-Business product at an eight-out-of-ten.

Straightforward to setup and customize but could be laid out a bit better

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution for Core HR, Absence Management, and payroll.

Pros and Cons

  • "It can easily be developed into an application."
  • "There are some cycles in HR that are not straightforward."

What other advice do I have?

I have a lot of experience, and I work with many customers. I know what they require and which features they are looking for. I would like to see where Oracle E-Business Suite will take the roadmap. I don't know if they will invest more in the roadmap for EBS or investing in the cloud. In summary, this is a good product but there is always an area for improvement. I would rate Oracle E-Business Suite a seven out of ten.

Great employee self-service and order management but needs better integrations

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution in a variety of ways via modules. There are parts for employees and other areas for services. On top of that, we have modules for supply chains. We have modules for human resource management, and financial as well as for retail and inventory.

Pros and Cons

  • "The order management is excellent."
  • "I would say the integration needs improvement. Oracle needs to work on the integration layer to make the solution much more robust and modern."

What other advice do I have?

Our relationship with Oracle is simplly one of supplier-customer relations. This solution is deployed in our organization on credit in two sides active-active. What I would tell other companies considering the solution is this: first, they need to know that it is an expensive solution. It's very expensive and therefore could only be affordable for companies that have a given level of revenue. Beyond that, I would say Oracle needs to be a fit for future use in terms of being cloud-native. Organizations should ensure their solution can run on other public cloud providers other than Oracle…

Enables us to identify many time-wasting duplicates but the master data management needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

One of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified that there were many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting. When the tsunami happened in 2009, our top management asked us how many suppliers were impacted in that particular area and how it would impact our supply chain cycle. When we tried to answer this question we thought that it would take one or two weeks, but it took our entire team three to four months to identify how many suppliers were impacted. That showed how important it is to remove the… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I think one of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified there were so many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting."
  • "The way things are going, Oracle is not putting much effort into their master data management. They need to look into machine data and then the integrated data domain."
